The evolution of subsurface deformation and tribological degradation of a multiphase Fe-based hardfacing induced by sliding contact (2023)
Journal Article

Multiphase Fe-based hardfacing alloys, for example Tristelle 5183 Fe-21%Cr-10%Ni-7.5%Nb-5%Si-2%C in wt.%, are extensively used for tribological applications, including valves, bearings and drive mechanisms, where two surfaces are unavoidably subjecte...

Galling of stainless steels as a function of test conditions in an ASTM G196-type test setup – The role of temperature, rotational velocity, interrupted rotation and rotational distance (2023)
Journal Article

Austenitic stainless steels have attractive properties for use in corrosive environments, but their use in components where motion under load is experienced (such as valves) is limited by their poor galling behaviour. Whilst stainless steels with imp...

Measurement of friction in galling testing – An example of its use in characterising the galling behaviour of hardfacings at ambient and elevated temperature (2021)
Journal Article

© 2021 Elsevier B.V. Galling is a category of severe adhesive wear that is defined by surface damage arising between sliding solids, distinguished by macroscopic, usually localized, roughening and creation of protrusions above the original surface. T... Read More about Measurement of friction in galling testing – An example of its use in characterising the galling behaviour of hardfacings at ambient and elevated temperature.

Microstructural characterisation of subsurface deformation and the degradation of Stellite 6 induced by self-mated sliding contact in a simulated PWR environment (2021)
Journal Article

© 2021 Elsevier Ltd Stellite 6 (Co-29.5%Cr-5%W-1.2%C in wt%) is traditionally used as a hardfacing material in the primary circuit of pressurised water reactors (PWRs) due to its good corrosion and wear resistance in water at up to 300 °C. In this st... Read More about Microstructural characterisation of subsurface deformation and the degradation of Stellite 6 induced by self-mated sliding contact in a simulated PWR environment.

Sliding wear of a self-mated thermally sprayed chromium oxide coating in a simulated PWR water environment (2019)
Journal Article

Bearing surfaces in the primary circuit of pressurized water reactors (PWR) are prone to damage due to aggressive chemical and tribological conditions under which they operate, and a wide range of materials have been examined in this regard. One of t... Read More about Sliding wear of a self-mated thermally sprayed chromium oxide coating in a simulated PWR water environment.

Comparison of the sliding wear behaviour of self-mated HIPed Stellite 3 and Stellite 6 in a simulated PWR water environment (2019)
Journal Article

Cobalt-based alloys such as Stellite 3 and Stellite 6 are widely used to protect stainless steel surfaces in primary circuit nuclear reactor applications where high resistance to wear and corrosion are required. In this study, selfmated sliding wear... Read More about Comparison of the sliding wear behaviour of self-mated HIPed Stellite 3 and Stellite 6 in a simulated PWR water environment.

Microstructural characterisation of Tristelle 5183 (Fe-21%Cr-10%Ni-7.5%Nb-5%Si-2%C in wt%) alloy powder produced by gas atomisation (2018)
Journal Article

Nitrogen gas atomised powders of the hardfacing alloy Tristelle 5183 (Fe-21%Cr-10%Ni-7%Nb-5%Si-2%C in wt%) were sieved into different particle size ranges and their microstructures have been investigated. Powder particles larger than approximately 53... Read More about Microstructural characterisation of Tristelle 5183 (Fe-21%Cr-10%Ni-7.5%Nb-5%Si-2%C in wt%) alloy powder produced by gas atomisation.

The effect of temperature on sliding wear of self-mated HIPed Stellite 6 in a simulated PWR water environment (2018)
Journal Article

Cobalt-based Stellite alloys are widely used in the primary circuit of pressurized water reactors (PWR) to protect valve surfaces against wear and galling in a corrosive environment. In this study, self-mated sliding wear of HIP-consolidated (Hot Iso... Read More about The effect of temperature on sliding wear of self-mated HIPed Stellite 6 in a simulated PWR water environment.
